Dr. Malan of Innovative Cosmetic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ is one of a small group of doctors in the U.S. participating in patient funded stem cell therapy for degenerative and inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s , and Lupus, among others. Dr. Malan has been part of ongoing research in the use of fat (adipose) stem cells as the basis for treatment where bone marrow stem cells had previously been used exclusively.
Advantages of fat (adipose) stem cells:
- more readily available and easy to harvest. Harvesting adipose stem cells is far more easily accessible and gentle on the patient than bone marrow cells;
- recent studies have shown these cells to be equally effective as bone marrow stem cells in lab comparisons;
- adipose stem cells may be more effective in controlling the body’s immune response- an important factor in many degenerative diseases and inflammatory disorders.
Although we cannot currently offer a cure as the outcome of stem cell therapies, Dr. Malan seeks to offer patients in the U.S. the opportunity to be a part of ongoing research based therapy that has previously only been available in other countries. As a member of the Cell Surgical Network, Dr. Malan is able to both access and contribute to a growing database of stem cell therapies and their outcomes. In this way, he can be a part of a unique group of physicians seeking to expand and improve the use of adipose stem cells in treating diseases that many Americans suffer from. Dr. Malan is dedicated to his patients and has formed a team of physicians from multiple disciplines in order to offer them a comprehensive and supportive approach to their care and treatment.
Patients who are suffering from a wide range of degenerative disorders as well as cardiac and digestive issues may benefit from contacting Dr. Malan in Arizona to discuss participating in research based therapies that have the potential to be life changing.
